  1. Hi G! I've been reading your blog for years and appreciate all the hard work you put into it! I've gotten so much out of your posts and just wanted to take a moment to thank you!!! I'm glad Mr. G took you on a well-deserved vacation :)

    Quick question, I am ulta platinum and many times I see that their freebies have a code (ex. the ulta hand soap). I noticed that you can't stack these with other codes (ex. 20% off or $5 off etc. or with any other freebie that has a code). do you know if there is a way around this? just curious. obviously i would love to get the soap, but not at the expense of $20 off my order.

    thanks for your help!

    1. As far as I know, you can't stack codes online but you CAN stack codes in store - if there is an Ulta near you, you can use the 20% off AND get your free hand soap (I just did this the other day!).

    2. thanks for your help!! unfortunately all the good stuff is online :( (LA Girl, Elf, BH cosmetics, etc) and i can guarantee it's there, AND they have the samples available (for the most part lol).

      oh well, i can do without the handsoap, but i am bummed about missing out on the IT cosmetics GWP :(

  2. BTW the IT cosmetics free with $50 is out of stock. i waited too long!!
